Marlborough House

Marlborough House, London.

The house was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and was built for Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough. It was completed in 1711 and served as the London seat of the Dukes of Marlborough for over a century. The House was taken up by the Crown in 1817 and used as a Royal residence until September 1959.

Marlborough House later became the headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat and also hosts the headquarters of the Commonwealth Foundation. Although not open to the public, pre-arranged guided historical tours of the house can be booked where the the finely decorated rooms can be enjoyed. The nature and the previous use of the property means that there is little photography and detail of the interiors in the public domain. On this page we are able to detail the fabrics that we have supplied but not their location or final uses.
